Artwork by Dignidad Rebelde (Melanie Cervantes and Jesus Barraza), Janet Diaz and Rosalie Lopez
In today’s Chicana/o culture, Aztlán signifies an important symbol of spiritual and national unity. The works in this exhibit include images of everyday life, politically motivated activist posters and sculptural works, all of which address issues concerning the contemporary Chicana/o. The artists have a strong affinity for printmaking because of its ability to create multiples, which allows them to spread their message to a wide audience. This democratic approach to art making not only strengthens their ideas and concepts, but more importantly becomes a voice for underrepresented Latino communities. Curated by Professor Rogelio Gutierrez, ASU-School of Art. Latino Americans: 500 Years of History has been made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.
